    Contemporary Mathematics
    Volume: 3392003; 216 pp
    MSC: Primary 35; 78; 81; 82;

    Science and engineering have been great sources of problems and inspiration for generations of mathematicians. This is probably true now more than ever as numerous challenges in science and technology are met by mathematicians. One of these challenges is understanding propagation of waves of different nature in systems of complex structure.

    This book contains the proceedings of the research conference, “Waves in Periodic and Random Media”. Papers are devoted to a number of related themes, including spectral theory of periodic differential operators, Anderson localization and spectral theory of random operators, photonic crystals, waveguide theory, mesoscopic systems, and designer random surfaces. Contributions are written by prominent experts and are of interest to researchers and graduate students in mathematical physics.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical physics and partial differential equations.
